Merry New Years Swimming Pool

Is it just me, or does the end of this year feel like jumping in a swimming pool?

Stubbed toe, bathing suit riding up, half-yelp as you fly through the air and then

Beauty.

A splash so big you could never have predicted it,

I’m sorry about your magazine.

I’ll be the geek child with the goggles,

You’ll know me by the turquoise and dolphin-esque finesse in the water.

I may never have passed the last level of swim lessons,

But anyone can be a mermaid, Dorkface.

Those barfy concessions stand nachos,

Or that time my cousin James split his swimming trunks off the high dive,

Classic.

Water in your ears has nothing on water in your sinuses,

I only swallowed a few pints.

Hey, but we’re all learning,

2015 is just sitting there,

A few minutes ‘til the New Year Cannon balls down in New York,

Whatever!

Happy New Year!

I hope you saved me a towel!

If not, there’s always next year for retribution!

Jk.

I am a teacher-to-be who loves people. I am not afraid of many things. I like to explain my thoughts logically on a very birds-eye view level--I was born thinking that way. I follow Jesus Christ, and I accept only that label to describe my identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
